It has been four days packed with all kind of exciting, interesting, surprising, insightful and social experiences. We have discussed the boundaries of Design research, reflected on the production of knowledge and the future of Scandinavian IS. And of course we had a lot of fun on all the side events. Extensive karaoke sessions, spontaneous get-togethers in the gallery, relaxing evenings in the jacuzzi. And not to forget the eleven highly motivated teams in the IRIS games that were building bows, climbing on trees and knitting hats.
The organizers want to thank all participants for being part of this conference.
After the conference is before the conference. You find more about the SCIS 2013/IRIS 36 here: www.mn.uio.no/ifi/iris2013
Welcome to Oslo!
The papers that were presented during the SCIS sessions were insightful and the conference and program chairs wanted to award the best papers with with an award.
Bendik Bygstad and Peter Axel Nielsen succeeded in taking an eternal problem into a new scandinavian context with their paper “Understanding and managing process interaction in IS development projects”
Two phd students stood out as single authors: Giulia Nardelli with her paper on the complex relationship between ICT and innovation in services and Heikki Lempinen with his paper on constructing a design framework for performance dashboards.
These are the last hours of the conference. Soon it is time to go home and start the new week and a new semester - hopefully with many new insights and ideas. But before that we are looking forward to yet another highlight of this conference: The SCIS panel starts after the coffee break at 10.30. Shirley Gregor, Alan Hevner,Tone Bratteteig, Ola Henfridsson, Jan Pries-Heje and Tuure Tuunanen will talk to and with you about Scandinavian Design Science Research.
You should already have checked out by now (since check-out time was at 9). Don’t forget the suggestion box that is still standing at the registration desk. Use it for all kind of feedback that you want to give to us. It will help to make next years IRIS/SCIS even better.
After a sandwich lunch at 12.30 it is time to get on the bus to Arlanda and finally back home.
If you want to take the bus to Arlanda you have to sign a list that you can find at the registration desk. That way we can also make sure that we do not forget anyone.
Shirley Gregor presented her newest research in the field of DSR. Even though it was the first event in the morning, no one wanted to miss the opportunity and the room New York was packed.
The IRIS working paper groups already had their last sessions, so it became quite intense during the afternoon when the last papers were discussed. This has been a really unique opportunity to air new ideas and get valuable input for our research from people that are working in similar fields.
The last dinner we have together at this conference starts at 7. We are looking forward to see you there!
For tomorrow we did some changes in the schedule because we felt it would be better to have more time for the SCIS panel and the “Meet the editor” session.Therefore you can meet the editors already at 9 and its a good opportunity to find out how you can make your paper success. The SCIS panel will then start planned at 10.30am and end just before lunch at 12. It is not mentioned in the program but all events tomorrow will take place in New York.
We hope you all had a good time last night and got some sleep because there is a full program today and you would not want to miss it.
It starts with the highly anticipated talk by Shirley Gregor.
After a coffee break the SCIS session take place. There is an important change: The two sessions are merged today and take place in New York.
In the afternoon we will have two IRIS working paper sessions. In between don’t forget the IRIS business meeting at 3.15pm. Everyone is welcome (and there will be coffee).
Finally we end the day with the SCIS dinner.
Enjoy the day and see you at the conference!
We had an excellent lunch and we will probably need it. The IRIS games take place today and we hope you come prepared. We meet at the terrace at 4pm. Its a good idea to wear something comfortable.
So we hope you are building some team spirit during the paper sessions. Don’t forget, there is also some coffee afterwards.
The game is on!
We hope you had a good night sleep and are ready for a new day and a full program.
We start with our industry keynote by Anette Novak. Her talk has the title: “On the readers side - lessons learned during 3 years of editorial open innovation”. After a coffee break we will start the SCIS sessions at 10.30.
After lunch we start the IRIS part of the day, with a working paper session at 1.30pm and finally at 4 we begin this years IRIS games. You will have some time to prepare before, so make sure your team is ready.
And we hope you’ll leave some room in your stomach because 7.15 we will start the IRIS dinner.
One more thing: you can find a box for your suggestions, ideas or comments at the registration box. We hope you will use it, we are looking forward to your feedback!
See you at the conference!
After the IRIS kick-off it is time for the reception, followed by a light dinner. Afterwards you will have social time on your own and plenty of options for your evening activities. For example some training in the gym. Or how about some karaoke (which is already highly anticipated by many )
Tomorrow we start at 9am with the industry keynote by Annette Novak.
The first day of the conference just started and it has been a good start. The weather is quite nice (considering that we are in Sweden).
Pär Ågerfalk and Jenny Eriksson Lundström gave a good overview not only over the schedule but also over our fantastic conference venue. It is for example possible to borrow a bike from the hotel to explore the beautiful surroundings and get a glimpse of the swedish nature life. Or you can try one of the two jacuzzis on the terrace.
In the very first keynote Prof. Alan Hevner went a bit deeper into design theory. It was interesting to hear about the ways knowledge is generated and developed. Prof. Hevner presented a knowledge contribution framework for DSR in form of a matrix. In his last part he also talks about the future, for example about the fitness of a design.
Now its time for the SCIS paper session in London (Design) and New York (The Interaction Society).
See you later at the reception!
